  • Sacred Stone Massage and Bodywork
    Even down to its decor, Sacred Stone Massage and Bodywork exudes comfort. The space’s airy feel and soothing color palette take guests in with slate-gray walls, soft lighting, and plush blankets and pillows that adorn the furniture. The spa’s licensed massage therapists embrace and complement the mellow ambiance with a host of massage services. They stretch and soothe aching muscles during relaxing Swedish and deep-tissue sessions and give expectant mothers a break from the tension that comes with carrying an infant and constantly fighting off flocks of storks with prenatal treatments. Hot stones and paraffin wax augment some sessions, whereas others include peppermint- and lavender-infused scrubs.

  • Derocher, Brent, Dc - Derocher Chiropractic
    Certified in both chiropractic and acupuncture treatments, Dr. Brent DeRocher seeks to reduce dependence on surgery or medication through a holistic approach to treating the body's muscles and the nervous system that controls them. Acupuncture treatments begin by identifying troubled areas of the body, then stimulating key pressure points to release the flow of blocked energy. Poke-aphobics will be relieved to know that Dr. DeRocher most often uses needle-less electrical stimulation, and polkaphobics will be pleased to learn that accordions are not part of Chinese medical tradition. Meanwhile, chiropractic treatment soothes and helps realign disheveled spinal columns to reduce recurrent pain and return bodies young and old to their full range of motion. The chiropractic exam begins by taking a detailed case history to discover the origins of creaking backs and achy limbs (a $92 value), and x-rays turn their gaze upon the hidden problems other kinds of rays are too polite to notice (an $80 value). During your two relief treatments, the chiropractor will apply carefully directed force to the spinal area, correcting the results of accidents, sports injuries, or everyday slouching (an $80 value). The specialist may also recommend at-home exercises to teach wayward muscles and ligaments about good habits and the dangers of emulating cartoon bodybuilders.

  • Ervin Family Chiropractic
    Licensed massage therapist Marianne Crandall draws upon her experience in spas, massage clinics, and doctor's offices to exile muscular tension with four massage modalities. Marianne first consults with patrons on their backs' problem areas to better isolate and assuage their individual issues. Hands smooth over sore and stiff surface tissues in the therapeutic massage and soothe expectant mothers' strains by wrapping torsos in lullaby sheet music during the prenatal massage. Deep-tissue or myofascial-release sessions duel with clients' deep-seated aches, zeroing in on afflicted zones with more intense pressure to increase range of motion and relieve chronic pain. After their treatment, physiques can boast reduced pain, diminished stress, and the ability to limbo under office doors.

  • Maplewood Wellness Center
    Dr. Lindsey Calvert-Downey’s first brush with chiropractic medicine was at the age of 14. She went to see a chiropractor after sustaining several injuries showing horses, and the results made her a firm believer in the practice. Now at the helm of her own clinic, she helps alleviate her clients’ pain and treats fertility issues using chiropractic adjustments, spinal-decompression treatments, and acupuncture sessions. Dr. Calvert-Downey also holds a certificate in animal chiropractic, with a special interest in realigning the spines of dogs, horses, and stuffed animals that have been hugged too tightly.
